Bordeaux nestles on the edge of a river, surrounded by world famous vineyards in sunny south west France. A 20 year rejuvenation project has left the UNESCO listed neoclassical architecture of the city gleaming and given it a unique air of vibrancy and joie d vivre.

When it comes to visiting Bordeaux, you’re utterly spoiled for things to see and do, especially for wine lovers. Visits to vineyards, wine tastings and picturesque villages in lush countryside await – and with Ophorus Tours you’ll get to see the very best Bordeaux can offer – plus an insider’s view. They also host discovery tours of this elegant city, including by bike, which is enormous fun.

Our Ophorus guide made our day special” a couple from New York wrote on TripAdvisor. “No question from our group went unanswered. Her sense of humor and patience were evident throughout our tour and we would not hesitate to recommend both our guide and Ophorus Tours. We also wish to acknowledge Christophe, the owner of the agency, who patiently answered our endless emails and coordinated our tours”. It’s the personal touch, a real person to chat to about the tour that’s best for you, and the knowledge of the guides that make these tours so special.
